Data structures of built environment
The digital leap of the built environment and construction sector requires that the information held by the public administration is easily available for different actors to use in their daily work. KIRA-digi helps public administration open and coordinate the data on buildings and the cultural environment so that it will be accessible to everyone.
Smooth information management also creates preconditions for new innovations and business activity.
Building information to be opened up
A wealth of information is accumulated during the lifecycle of a building, starting from the investment decision and ending in the recycling of the waste created when the building is demolished. Information on the building is required in a number of decision-making processes and measures, but it is currently dispersed in different systems.
The key task given to KIRA-digi is to make the information management solutions developed by different parties interoperable. It is therefore important to define the main information content of the building, i.e. the minimum information most often needed by users.
The opening up of building information is also supported by the work on the enterprise architecture of the built environment, the standardisation road map and the terminology work in the sector, all of which are part of KIRA-digi.
Interfaces to cultural heritage data
The shared use of information on the built cultural heritage will promote streamlined decision-making and the monitoring of conservation of cultural environments. KIRA-digi works to improve the structures and interfaces of this information. This way, the work of the authorities can be speeded up, for example, when an evaluation of the need to protect a site is required.
Shared information model for real estate investments and management
A shared, broad-based and standardised information model and shared interfaces for service channels will be created in KIRA-digi for the use of real estate investments and management.
The information model is mainly implemented by KTI Property Information Ltd. RAKLI and a background group comprised of real estate investors, owners, and managers also participate in the work and evaluation. Information models for essential processes, i.e. rental and maintenance activities, serve as the starting point for the definitions.
